This weekend the family and I woke up at the crack of dawn to participate in the craziness known as Blue Angels Weekend. Over 100,000 people pile onto our little beach to watch this amazing airshow – but one thing locals know for sure – you better get there early. In our case, it meant a wake up call at 5:15 am. Now, I love my iPhone, but the battery life leaves a little something to be desired. I am sure it has nothing to do with the fact that I am on Facebook and Instagram pretty much 24/7. Either way, normally I am left running back to the car to try to recharge my phone half way through the day so that I can get some clips of the Blues flying. Not this year however. This year I took the Secur Solar Sun Power Bank 6000 to try out. Let me just say, this thing now has a permanent pocket in my beach bag.
The Secur Solar Sun Power Bank 6000 is nice and small – not much bigger than some smartphones I have seen. Its water resistant so I had no worry taking it right down to the beach with me. Even at the end of the day – after most everyone had left – this little thing was still working – having charged up my phone, Mike’s phone, and even The Teens phone. It has built in USB and USB micro cables, but also has a place for two USBs to plug in. There is a screen on the front that will tell you how much battery power is left as well.
We took a couple zillion pictures while we were out at the beach – after all I met up with some people that I haven’t seen in over 17 years… like this guy:
And tons of pics of our beautiful beach all packed out… with 100,000+ of our closest friends:
